Steve Addazio will be the face of the Eagles for the years to come.

Boston College announced Tuesday Addazio has signed a two-year extension, meaning he's signed through 2022.

"After every season we evaluate all aspects of our programs to make sure they are aligned with the core mission and principles of the Boston College athletics department," athletic director Martin Jarmond said in a letter to the BC community.

"While all of us wish our regular season in football had ended with more victories, we took important steps in the right direction this year: returning to the national rankings for the first time since 2008, capturing the nation's attention with ESPN's College GameDay on-campus, being in the running for the conference championship in November and playing in another post-season bowl.In addition, our football student-athletes remain great ambassadors for our University and also continue to achieve tremendous success in the classroom, graduate at one of the highest rates in the country, and become successful leaders.

"To continue building on our football program's progress and promise, we are extending Coach Steve Addazio's contract for two additional years through the 2022 season. Steve and I are committed to taking the next steps to enhance competitive excellence in Boston College football."

BC has made a bowl game in five of the six seasons with Addazio as head coach.
